they use those chemical wello weapons. >> if we ever saw them preparing to use the weapons, and if they ever used them, they would not just be held accountable. we should do what jim bake der to the iraqi government and let them know if they were to prepare or use these weapons, they would face the utmost consequences. ie, that would be the basis for regime change. they should understand, not only is there not only a green light, there is no yellow light. any preparation will cross the line. it's pushing back against any outside intervention. he's trying to basically say outsiders stay out, which is also way i think he's signaling if left to his own devices, he still thinks he can win the game, if you will, if it's just him against this fractured syrian opposition. maybe he's bluffing. he doesn't seem to be that worried about that balance. >> you heard john mccain on our show last week also saying president obama is not doing enough. what should president obama be doing that he's not doing? >> and what can he do? >> sure, look, obviously this is a very complicated issue, no

it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney

to be part of the olympics in any way you can be part of it. >> when is the event and for those of us that don't follow the sport is there rounds of competition, just one chance, what happens? >> i have to tell you, this is ann's sport. i'm not sure which day the sport goes on. she will get to see it. i will not be watching the event. i hope her horse does well. >> good morning. it's thursday, july 26th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, hello, mike. i'm not going to say anything. don't you worry. you look quite fine today. >> thank you. >> msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele is with us. and msnbc political analyst and visiting professor at nyu, former democratic congressman harold ford jr. and, of course, willie geist in london for the olympics. >> how is your horse doing? >> he doesn't know the name of the horse, the event the horse is going in, and if there's actually a name of the event that has sort of a french flair to it he's not going to say it. >> dressage. >> could he
